Absence really does make the heart grow fonder.
British tv star Cat Deeley enjoyed a girls night out at last night's Emmy Awards, minus husband Patrick Kielty.
While her Irish comedian husband is a red carpet fixture on her side, he took the night off for last night's awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
As one of the biggest nights on Deeley's social calendar, she was dressed to impress in a couture Burberry gown, created specifically for her by the label's Creative Director Chrisopher Bailey.
The Emmys hold a special place in Pat and Cat's relationship as the 2012 ceremony is where they first went public with their romance.
It's no surprise that she enjoyed a night our with pals and her creative team as Cat recently revealed the secret to her happy marriage to her husband of two years is long distance.
After a two decade-long friendship, Deeley says they have plenty of time apart to give them space.
“We start getting on each other’s nerves. He starts to hate me and I start to hate him," she said.
“And he has to go away and I kind of miss him. We’re normally apart for about 10 days. And then he comes back and we’re lovely again.
“It works out perfectly. It’s the perfect scenario. Lots of my friends are quite jealous about our relationship.”
Last night's Emmys attracted a host of television's hottest A-list stars, including Kerry Washington, Kevin Spacey, Julia Roberts, Matthew McConnaughey, January Jones and more.
